Heads Up!

The Writer’s Astrological Almanac

by Kathy Watts

March 2015

(all times PST until 2 am Mar 08; then PDT)

March starts on a Sunday (the Sun’s day of the week), so shine your brightest and make your work your best all month long. It may slow you down, but it’s worth it (unless you’re under a deadline, I suppose).

Sun Mar 01 the Moon is void of course in Cancer when Mercury sextiles Uranus at 7:55 am. Crazy new ideas and comments may resonate more. Are you reading (or writing) something outrageous? Why not? Five hours and twenty minutes later (1:15 pm) Mercury opposes Jupiter. You can slow down and pull back now. The Moon doesn’t enter Leo for another couple of hours (3:34 pm). Go out and have some cozy fun.

Mon Mar 02 the Moon makes a conjunction with Jupiter. It’s in the evening, but it’s applying all day. Feel lucky and attract a lot of positive responses to your questions and queries.

Wed Mar 04 the Moon enters Virgo in the very early morning. About three hours later (7:14 am) Venus trines Jupiter. Editing should be easy (if you’re a morning person, I suppose). Three and half hours later (10:46 am) Venus makes a conjunction with Uranus. Are we having fun yet (or, at least causing mischief)? The first three Wednesdays of this month we start the day with the Moon in a fixed sign. Do as much as you can while you can before the Moon moves into a mutable sign and people and interruptions find you.

Thu Mar 5 we have the Full Moon at 14 Vir. This lunar month you can make things right if not perfect. Buckle down, work hard, and smile regardless. In the late afternoon the Sun sextiles Pluto. You can make some changes now or prepare to do so tomorrow.

Sat Mar 07 the Sun makes a conjunction with the asteroid Chiron in the evening. Do you care about asteroids? (I try not to, but sometimes they insist.) Rather than complain, learn something useful from the discomfort.

Sun Mar 08 Daylight Savings Time begins. Alas, so much for apparent local solar time. Last night (Saturday) at 10:50 pm the Moon in Libra opposed Uranus. Today the Moon opposes Venus at 8:58 am. Weren’t those planets just conjunct? Yes, Venus moves that fast. Mild mischief may be in the air but it may not be appreciated.

Mon Mar 09 the Moon is in Scorpio when Mars in Aries trines Jupiter in Leo. Is that enough fire for you? Be happy it’s a trine. Feelings may be running very high, so watch your temper and let your characters fight it out.

Wed Mar 11 the Moon is still in Scorpio when Mars conjuncts Uranus in Aries. About four hours later Mars squares Pluto. Heads Up!! Stay in your seat and work. Stay out of trouble. On the up side, you could get a ton of work done and surprise yourself. Grab this Heads Up day by the horns, shake hard, and make it good!

Thu Mar 12 the Moon is conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius. Think about who your audience is, really. In the morning, the Moon squares Neptune. If you’re feeling disappointed, relax, decide if the cause is real, and then let it go. In the evening, the Moon trines Jupiter (6:08 pm) and then trines Uranus (8:42 pm). Some big desire or gesture could get out of control. Maybe not the best time to do plotting. Ten minutes later, Mercury changes signs, leaves Aquarius at last and enters Pisces. You can stop over thinking things now. Finally, the Moon trines Mars (10:43 pm). It may be hard to get to sleep, mentally hashing over what has happened today.

Sat Mar 14 the Moon is in Capricorn when Saturn goes stationary retrograde. Your critical faculties are not going to suffer. If you’ve been enjoying Saturn in Sagittarius, you have from now till early June before Saturn reenters Scorpio.

Sun Mar 15 the Moon makes a conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn. Often a tense time, put any nervous energy into your work and get a lot done.

Mon Mar 16 the Moon is in Aquarius when Uranus makes its seventh and final square to Pluto (at least, until 2073). This has been applying for a long time now. Treat it as an astrological holiday of some sort, and keep on working. That’s my plan. If you have revolt or revolution in your heart, it’s not going to go away. Meanwhile, work on your work. It can be the best immediate revenge.

Tue Mar 17 the Moon is in Aquarius when Venus changes signs, leaves Aries and enters her home sign Taurus. Wear something beautiful and green. Erin Go Bragh! Write in green ink if you must, but don’t submit anything looking like that. You know this already.

Wed Mar 18 the Moon is void of course in Aquarius when Mercury conjuncts Neptune in Pisces (1:49 am). This is the stuff of rich dreams. By 3:58 am the Moon has also entered Pisces. Get psychic and get into the heads and hearts of your characters. In the afternoon, the Moon conjuncts Neptune (4:44 pm) and then conjuncts Mercury (6:28 pm). Write those dreamscapes, or sit with a head full of fog and take notes. You could see all manner of things today.

Thu Mar 19, the Moon conjuncts Chiron in Pisces. Any hurt or owie won’t last long, and it may be imaginary. (It’s beginning to sound like everything is in Pisces, but that’s an illusion, too.) The real Heads Up, though, is that tomorrow is the New Moon. Heads Up. Be your basic safe self. It’s also the last day of the month when the Sun is in the sign of Pisces. Tomorrow the Sun will be a guest in the house of Mars and the universe may feel warmer, faster, more eager and impatient. Heads Up.

Fri Mar 20 we have the New Moon at 29 Pisces. This happens at 2:36 am, after which the Moon briefly goes void of course. Heads Up. It’s also a total solar eclipse. If this degree of the zodiac is important in your natal chart, this year could be more interesting than most. For the New Moon to happen at the very end of the zodiac suggests that maybe something major has been concluded, even if we’re not aware of it (yet). Heads Up to that possibility. At 3:28 am the Moon enters Aries. The Moon is being the Sun’s herald here; the zodiac has not started anew, not yet. To keep the lid on a fiery day, the Moon trines Saturn at 11:14 am. The morning may be intense but subdued. Heads Up. About four and a half hours later (3:45 pm) the Sun leaves Pisces and enters the sign of Aries. It’s the day of the vernal equinox, the first day of Spring. Cast yourself an ingress chart for a peek at how the next three months unfold for you. Some people consider the first day of Spring to be New Year’s Day. We are now at the very beginning of the zodiac. What is it that you really would like to start? You have not only this lunar month, but the whole year. Think big. Heads Up!

Sat Mar 21 the Moon makes a conjunction with Uranus in Aries (4:14 am). Yesterday’s high energy is still blazing strong. Heads Up! In the afternoon, the Moon is conjunct Mars (3:51 pm) and then goes void of course in Aries. Be safe, but stay focused and let the world look out for itself! This is the stuff of a serious working jag.

Sun Mar 22 the Moon is conjunct Venus in Taurus. Whatever you’ve been doing, you can do in a more refined, elegant way today. It can have permanence, too.

Tue Mar 24 the Moon is void of course in Taurus when Mercury is conjunct Chiron, in Pisces (6:07 am). Will this Pisces sensitivity never end? Be gentle with yourself and let things heal. Sixteen minutes later, the Moon enters Gemini. Heads Up in the best way. We have from now until the middle of Thursday to indulge in all those things that Gemini loves, like communicating, writing, and being curious about everything and everyone. Go for it.

Wed Mar 25 the Moon is in Gemini all day. At 12:25 pm, the Sun in Aries makes a trine to Saturn in Sagittarius. Yes, I know, Saturn is retrograde now. Regardless, power lunch or phone call? Or, judiciously hold your peace. Regardless, be productive.

Thu Mar 26 the Moon leaves Gemini and enters Cancer at 12:45 pm. Did you have a good time?

Mon Mar 30 the Moon conjuncts Jupiter in Leo (12:15 am). You have all day to feel lucky. In the evening (6:44 pm) Mercury changes signs, leaves Pisces and enters Aries. Prepare to have your mind running in overdrive. If taking notes is too slow, resort to dictation and a recording.

Tue Mar 31 the Moon is in Leo when Mars leaves its home sign of Aries and enters Taurus at 9:26 am. Things cool down further when the Moon enters Virgo at 11:12 am. Maybe it’s a good day to edit.

It’s certainly one heck of a month, starting out deep and subdued, then switching to hot and heavy. Be ambitious, be intent, be practical, focused, and on target. No matter what happens out in the world at large, you are the writer and the creator of your work world. Pull the strings, light the fire, warm the heart, and agitate the mind. Have no fear as you move forward and make your words come to life in the real world. Be spectacular and go for broke. Yes, this is you that we’re talking about. Heads Up!
